    Hello Ruth, I am the poster girl for aches and pains, I developed thembasically at the same time that peri started tremendous aches in my arms, I have shoulder nodules that are cyst like and they hurt, I have joint pain, I showed them to the dr and he said that he could not see anything serious but the peri can lead to aches mainly due to hormonal changes, honestly, I had NO idea that menopause led to these myriad symptoms, I always thought heat flashes was it, I had no idea that there are about 40 symptoms associated with this, and now the research shows it can last 14 years!

      Hi gill - i think the nausea is to do with hormones especially in the mornings, and yes it does feel like pregnancy - although after I had my surgery I felt very sick for weeks and weeks and the nurse dressing my wound told me that anything gyne can cause nausea,  have you had hysterectomy ? x

      No I haven't . The nausea was one of my 1st symptoms with really bad gas. My periods are all over the place. The gas and nausea seem to be worse before my period comes.xx

    Poor you, Ruth

    I also suffer from the bloating and nausea plus period aches and pains but no period for two months! Easing the wind with fennel tea which helps. It's all a bit miserable!
